Default novarossi p5 question

I have a novarossi p5 in my k3, the problem is after starting it once I get on the gas it idles pretty high and stays that way. I have tried all kinds of different things such as riching the low and high speeds didnt work, then I tried leaning them that didnt work. The temp is ok thou. Also I have tried adjusting the idle screw, and yes there is about 1mm in the slide at netural. If have been running odonnell 99 plugs as well as odonnell 30%. Think it could be a air leak some were? Also were can I get p5 instructions at online

Is it erratic, or just high? If it's erratic, and the engine is difficult to tune, it's an air leak, otherwise it's a combo of tuning. FYI, richening the LSN lowers idle speed, leaning it raises idle speed.
